    Two 6 month pups I breed. Cattle cross.
    Still learning but hope to catch pigs and aid in deer hunting.

    Ninth birthday today. These two have been dishing out the love to Mum and Dad during our unfortunate spell on the sidelines. Gotta love the Nanny Dog.

    Sounds just like our new girl.
    2 year old Bichon with zero training.
    Opinion on everything, whether she’s asked or not.
    Starting to come when called, I used to have to send my shepherd out to herd her back to me.

    After being a duck dog for the past 8 years, finally got around to getting Rocco out and onto a deer.

    Our latest edition Zoe. She is coming along nicely and has firmly cemented her place in the pack.

    @Flyblown - Yep awesome dogs

    But I thought Pit Bulls were the Nanny Dog ?

    I had one & you couldn't of got a more intelligent & tolerant dog than that Boy .

    Fetch Rabbits, retrieve Pheasants, hold Boars & track Deer, bloody amazing !

    Well, the Nanny Dog is a phrase that comes from the early days when the little Staffords lived in small terraced houses with 3 or 4 generations of the same family in tight conditions. It’s written up in the Staffordshire Bull Terrier history books, but that’s not to say that other breeds don’t have a right to the same nickname! We’ve also had some experience with proper Pit Bulls that were fantastic caring cuddle dogs, very dedicated to sticking with those that needed the company.

    Nice Staffies Flyblown they look like they are on their best behaviour
    You know they are getting on a bit when they get a bit of grey on the chin aye. It's actually getting a bit harder to find Staffies these days. Not as common as they were 20ish years ago. They are such happy little critters.

    Yup @rugerman, older than me now if you subscribe to the 7-for-1 ageing of dogs.

    Had to laugh when you said “such happy little critters”.

    They are indeed, happy wee dogs, who will happily keep our bed warm all day. But they are never happier than when they are killing their next snack. And therein lies the challenge with the Tuff-As-Terrier.

    When we are on the hill country farm, it’s a hard ask to stop these two chasing pigs. Problem is the pigs have a habit of turning round and turning muppet pet dogs inside out... Not a good look for me. Hey wife, look what that horrid pig did to your dog... So I would like to personally thank the guy that invented electric dog training collars, for collars teach dogs very quickly.

    Hey Staffy - see those oinking kunekune pigs, they’ve got magic powers and so have all their mates up the hill, go anywhere near them and you are going to levitate 3 feet in the air and feel like Zeus himself smoked your ass!

    After that, pigs are a lot less attractive for general sporting purposes. Gotta love training collars. You can most definitely teach an old dog new tricks.
